Bottle shared with northropfrye. Delicious black colour. "How is a colour delicious?" "I don’t know, I’m saying it anyway." Rich aroma of booze and fruit. Bitter sweet and rich taste. Not bad. Done.

Dark body brown head, would give it a 5 for appearance if the head lasted longer and there was more lacing, but initially it was gorgeous. Aroma of bread malts, dried fruit, chocolate covered cherries, a bit of booze. Taste is sweet, nice roast bitterness as well, coffee, dark chocolate, bread. Overall quite a nice imperial stout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle picked up at Supermarket Liquors
Poured black with a medium sized dark brown head and some lacing. Towards the end of the beer the head turned into thick jelly. I was sipping the beer and felt something hard hit my lips, like WTF? I fished out 2 big pieces. I don’t know what that was about, I have pictures to prove I wasn’t seeing things. Aroma was roasted malts, caramel, leather and chocolate. Flavors were roasted malts, chocolate and vanilla
Nice and smooth. Creamy mouthfeel

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a pitch black body under a frothy one inch dark brown head that had excellent retention. The nose is really rich and decadent with tons of roast, chocolate, oatmeal, and coffee. A light accent of hops, but this is all about the malt. The flavor is just as rich and lovely as the aroma, the oatmeal really rounds out the flavor versus the regular Yeti. The alcohol in this version is almost completely hidden. Big roast and chocolate malt, but very minimal bitterness due the heavy handed use of the oatmeal. Finishes with some burnt and roasty malt and just a touch of alcohol. The mouthfeel is a bit odd though, it comes across as really chalky on the back end and it really lacks in the smoothness that I was expecting from the oatmeal because of it. Soft fizzy carbonation. Overall a pretty nice beer, but the chalkiness in the mouthfeel is hard to get past sometimes.

Very thick dark with a thin layer of khaki head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, some oatmeal. Thick full mouthfeel, lots of chocolate coffee and oatmeal, decent amount of bitter. Finishes with some bitter and oatmeal taste. Good combo of flavors. Warming and great winter drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled June 25, 2013 (~5 months old).
Appearance: The body is pitch black, no light visible whatsoever. The head takes a hard pour to coax out, but it’s a vivid brown with a dense body. The head doesn’t stick around long though, it forms a sparse coaing with a foamy ring.
Aroma: The aroma is prominent with raisins with a mild dark chocolate presence complimenting it. Sweet chocolate and a very small hint of brown sugar is noted upon swirling. I get a slight marijuana presence as it warms more.
Taste: The taste is similar to what I remember of regular Yeti, skewed towards piney hops with a big malt base behind it. The flavor is a bit muddy throughout though with nothing prominent, some brown sugar and malt sweetness, but nothing pops out. The hops provide a mild piney bitterness towards the finish while some chocolate sweetness with malt sweetness linger a moment on the finish.
Palate: Thick, chewy and mildly carbonated.
Overall: Ah man what a disappointment. I get very little flavor and aroma other than a muddy blend of non-descriptness. Nothing pops and I feel the oats hide the base beer a bit.
